Overall happy with my DAT scores, but kinda concerned about my PAT. What do you guys think?

Okay so I just took my DAT yesterday and this is my break down:
PAT: 19
QR: 18
Reading Comp: 20
Biology: 21
GC: 19
Orgo: 29
TS: 21
AA: 21

My over all gpa is a 3.5 (3.52)
Science: 3.56 (3.61)
BCP: 3.69 (3.72)
Parentheses are including +-

Do you guys think I have a solid chance of getting some interviews? Like I said in the title I am happy with my overall score, but I'm rather disappointed with my Gen Chem and PAT score. The worst part is that I know I could've have done better on those sections, however I think test anxiety and stress got the best of me, resulting in rather poor time management. I have had people tell me that the PAT is weighted really heavily because perceptual ability is an integral component of being a good dentist. Do you guys think I have anything to worry about here or am I just being super paranoid? I'm hoping it's the latter.

PAT is fine, you'll have interviews for sure.
